As soon as you arrive at this hotel, you cannot help but be blown away by the view, which is totally amazing. Our bedroom was a standard room and perfectly adequate, well appointed with a balcony and uninterrupted views over the city and harbour down below. The restaurant served a lovely meal, with plenty of choice from a buffet for starters and desserts, and menu selection for the main course, cooked to order. Again, the view from the restaurant terrace, both at breakfast time and at night, draws your gaze back again and again. The staff were most obliging and couldn't fault them. There is a small but nice swimming pool area on the top deck, and the bar terrace is delightful.
Admittedly it is a bit of a hike up from the city below, especially in hot weather, and a taxi is necessary for this. You are cut off a little from the city below, but only by a very short taxi ride. The jet set location definitely compensates for this. We would definitely stay here again.
